Salivary stone?: If the swelling is actually under the tongue on that side she may have a large sublingual salivary stone that is blocking a duct. This can be confirmed with an x-ray of the area. See your dentist to have that condition diagnosed.

Swollen tongue: This could be due to trauma, allergy, infection or other cause. See you dentist or medical doctor to be evaluated. You did not say how long you have had this. If interfering with airway or increasing go to emergency room immediately
